Homeless Man Becomes Porn Star

From Homeless to AVN Award Hopeful Chad Diamond Loves Porn

Chad Diamond

(Hollywood, CA) He was homeless just a year ago but adult movie performer Chad Diamond has put together an impressive string of movie roles onto his resume’ on his way to emerging as one of the best actors in the industry in only his first year in the business.

With roles in some of the year’s biggest movies including Not M*A*S*H XXX, This Ain’t Glee XXX, and Not Charlie’s Angels XXX, Diamond has honed his acting skills while also participating in some extreme sex movies where femdom and group-sex orgies rule. To say that the actor is versatile is like saying Ron Jeremy loves women but Diamond would have it no other way.

“My life has taken a complete turn ever since I appeared in my first porn movie,” the lanky twenty-eight year old actor offered. “I was homeless living in my car which then got repossessed when I booked a few jobs on Craig’s List with Bangbros and quickly after that I was in a fan series for Dean Leal.”

A regular performer in the circus ring of Porno Dan’s Immoral Productions and some crazy sex movies with Jim Powers, Diamond admits he’s having a lot of fun doing what most guys could only secretly wish for.

“My life is fantastic now. I get to work with excellent fun people and have sex with beautiful girls. What more could I want?”

Perhaps an industry award would be the crowning achievement to an improbable fairy tale.

“Chad’s an excellent actor and is actually a trained thespian,” offered Will Ryder who has directed Diamond in a number of X-Play movies including Not Charlie’s Angels XXX, the just wrapped Not Rocky XXX and the upcoming bionic blast of the Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman XXX adventure due out in January from X-Play and Digital Sin.

Up for multiple AVN awards including Best Actor and Best Male Newcomer plus being a vocalist on a musical selection from Glee XXX that has been nominated for Best Song, Diamond takes nothing for granted.

“I know this is only temporary and it could all go away tomorrow but for now I’m going to love life, love the industry, love the people in it, love my girlfriend and hopefully love a few more cuties along the way.”

What could be better than that? Check out Chad Diamond because the guy is an excellent actor.

13 is Sunny Leone’s Lucky Number


2010 has been a stellar year for adult entertainment superstar Sunny Leone and her production company, SunLust Pictures. Sunny, who continues to be one of the leading stars in the adult film world, has seen SunLust’s meteoric rise as well as crossing over to mainstream in a big way with her appearance in “The Virginity Hit.”

Capping off this amazing year, Sunny and SunLust were honored with a thirteen AVN Award nominations including five for SunLust’s monster hit “Gia: Portrait of a Porn Star.”

“I am so excited by the nominations,” said Sunny. “Everyone at SunLust worked so hard on Gia. It was such an ambitious project and I am so proud of the results.”

Gia’s nominations include one for “Best Screenplay Adapted” for writer/director Spencer Benedict, “Best Original Song” for the Sin City Sinners’ “Numb” and a nomination in the “Best Parody: Drama” category.

Sunny was nominated for a pair of awards for Gia. Her scene with Tori Black was nominated as “Best All Girl Couple Scene” and Sunny has honored with a “Best Actress” nomination for her lead role in the film.

“I had such a good time with Tori,” adds Sunny. “She is so beautiful and we had great chemistry on set. I am honored by the nomination for ‘Best Actress,’ but being naked with Tori was a lot more fun than learning dialogue.”

Sunny’s girl/girl scenes are legendary and she was recognized for several of them. Her threesome with Karlie Montana and Devi Emmerson was nominated in the “Best All Girl Three Way” category. She also garnered a pair of nominations in the “Best All Girl Group Scene” category. Sunny’s G/G heat carried over to SunLust’s all-girl line “Pussy Eating Club” which was nominated for “Best All Sex Series.”

Fans and critics alike loved “Sunny’s B/G Adventure,” which scored three nominations. The movie was nominated as “Best Vignette Release” and for “Best Music Soundtrack.” Sunny’s three-way with Daisy Marie and Voodoo was recognized in the “Best Three Way G/G/B” category.

In addition to the bevvy of award nominations for SunLust and her sex scenes, Sunny was honored with a pair of individual award nominations. Her web site SunnyLeone.com was nominated as “Best Porn Star Web Site.” In part due to her high profile appearance in “The Virginity Hit” as well as “Black Shama” which was recently completed in the Philippines, Sunny was also recognized in the “Crossover Star of the Year” category.  Sunny Leone was also nominated for her work in Hocus Pocus XXX, Best All-Girl group sex scene.

Sunny Leone and SunLust Pictures are proud to end 2010 on such a high note.

When asked what she thought about being in Club International Audrey Hollander said, “Love Club International and I was very happy to find out that I was in this month’s issue of the magazine!  It was fun working on the movie with such a large cast so it’s great to check out the pics from it in the magazine to look back on the good times we had.  You should have seen the madness that first day of shooting with so many girls on set.  Everyone is trying to find their costumes and get into hair and makeup.  It’s was madness, but in a good way.

Kelli Roberts, Writer and Producer of Hocus Pocus XXX adds, “Hocus Pocus XXX was my first movie so as you can imagine, I’m so beyond ecstatic to have such a great magazine do a story on it and a big one at that.  8 pages is beyond my wildest expectations.

Lucky 13

Thirteen Proves to be the Luckiest Number for Performer of the Year Nominee Andy San Dimas for AVN 2011
This Year’s “It” Star Racks Up an Impressive 13 Big AVN Nominations Including Best Actress and Performer of the Year
Andy San Dimas was hoping for only two nominations for the upcoming AVN Award Show in Las Vegas in January, Performer of the Year and Best Actress.  Not only did San Dimas get both of those nominations, she also received 11 others to cap off one of the most impressive, star-turning years in recent memory.  San Dimas, a Spiegler girl, joins Bobbi Starr, Kristina Rose and Asa Akira as part of one of the most heavily-nominated rosters in the adult business.
“I can’t believe the number of nominations I received. I only really wanted 2…1 for performer of the year, and 1 for best actress. The rest were all surprises!” San Dimas adds, “I’ve always wanted to be more than just “a porn girl”…I think that getting 13 nominations really solidifies me as a genuine porn star…a title that is often thrown around too loosely.”
San Dimas has starred in some of the year’s biggest releases, including Batman XXX, This Ain’t Glee XXX, FemmeCore, Malice in Lalaland, The Big Lebowski XXX, and Not Charlie’s Angels XXX.  For 2011, Andy stars in Superman XXX, Rocky XXX, Elvis XXX and Andy San Dimas Superstar for Hustler.
“I don’t remember a year where one star shined so brightly in one year.  Besides the shear number of big titles she appears in, she is the boxcover star of almost all of them.” Adam & Eve/skinworXXX director Joshua, who produced FemmeCore starring San Dimas. “She’s the queen of parodies because the girl can act, sing and fuck like no one else in the business.  If there’s one girl I’d bank on to see blow up in the mainstream too, it’s most definitely Andy.  I am thoroughly impressed this year by her.”
In addition to her big nods for Female Performer of the Year and Best Actress for This Ain’t Glee XXX, San Dimas received nods for Best Supporting Actress for Malice in Lalaland, Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene for both FemmeCore from director Teagan Presley as well as The Big Lebowski: A XXX Parody, and another for Best All-Girl Three-Way Sex Scene also for FemmeCore alongside Teagan Presley and Celeste Star.

November 4, 2010 — MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — Chanel Preston was selected by AVN Media as the Trophy Girl for the 2011 AVN Award Show. The coveted job positions Chanel prominently in front of thousands of people at the show and millions watching Showtime’s exclusive coverage. The 2011 AVN Award Show takes place January 8 at the Pearl Theater inside Las Vegas’ Palms Casino Resort. New Starlet Chanel Preston continues to be the unanimous choice to represent the adult industry’s highest profile events, including serving as the Trophy Girl for the 2010 XRCO and FAME award shows. “We are so excited to work with Chanel Preston on the 2011 show,” AVN Awards executive producer Renee Johnson proclaimed. “In less than a year, Chanel has come to personify many of the best aspects of the adult industry. The beautiful and intelligent performer is a top rising star, which is why we chose her as one of the 2011 Trophy Girls. We have an amazing award show planned for 2011, and we’re pleased to have Chanel be a part of it.”

AVN founder Paul Fishbein agrees, “Chanel Preston is definitely one to watch. She’s a triple threat – she has brains, beauty and personality. We’re looking forward to her role in the 2011 awards show.”

“Trophy Girl at the AVN Awards is one of the top honors a performer can receive,” says Chanel Preston. “I attended the 2010 awards before I entered the industry, now only one year later I’m going to be up on the stage. I’m looking forward to every second of the show in front of my peers and the rest of the world. Thank you so much to Paul, Renee and the rest of AVN for this amazing opportunity. I’m extremely thrilled.”

Chanel Preston was first spotted by AVN Media at the 2010 XRCO Awards, performing her duties as a Heart-on-Girl (trophy girl). The gorgeous brunette was attracting all the attention every time she walked across the stage. Chanel’s first scene was unreleased at the time, but her looks alone were enough to secure her a position as a Trophy Girl for the 2011 AVN Awards that very night. Since then, her celebrated scenes further support AVN’s decision.

Chanel’s performances are receiving rave reviews and earned her the 2010 NightMoves Magazine award for Best New Starlet. Her critically acclaimed scenes may be found in “Not M*A*S*H XXX” from X-Play, “Fashion Fucks” from Jules Jordan Video, “Hooked”, “Speed” and “4 Some” from Wicked, “This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D” from Hustler, “Nylons 8” and “Bikini Land” from Third Degree, and “Porn Fidelity 23” from Juicy Entertainment.

About Chanel Preston:

Delicate beauty—the symbolic meaning of Hawaii’s hibiscus—is apropos when describing tanned goddess Chanel Preston. Chanel’s long, slender legs and large, full breasts attract lustful stares and obsession about the sweetness of her own flower. However, the similarities between Chanel and the delicate hibiscus stop there. Before wading through the waves on the beaches of Hawaii, the 24-year-old Chanel absorbed the strength and independence derived from a childhood in central Alaska. As a result, the exotic looking stunner has an impulsive, adventuresome personality befitting of a Sagittarius, which makes her a natural performer, eager to amaze. Chanel’s celebrated scenes and immense exposure led NightMoves Magazine to present her with the 2010 Best New Starler award.

AVN 2010 is now on Showtime

If you missed the 2010 AVN awards this year and you have Showtime you might want to check it out now. It’s in rotation for at least the next few weeks.

By the way, I just checked out the big Evil Angel Belladonna dance number everyone was going on about. Seriously? That was the big fucking deal? I mean honestly to me it was a bunch of chicks on stage in a lazily choreographed dance number with a bunch of girls that didn’t have half as much time to rehearse as they could have. The costumes were cheap and nothing spectacular at all. Every piece could have easily been obtained from your local Wal-Mart. I thought a “Vegas style show” was supposed to be about outlandish and extravagant costumes? Had they at least done that I would have been far, far more impressed.
